Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, July 1971 Your Horoscope By JEANE DIXON FHIDAY, JULY 30 Your Birthday Today: This is the year to begin anew wherever you are, taking a fundamental shift of direc- tion. Old solutions to familiar problems no longer seem to apply, seldom worked before, now not at all. Today's na- tives arc skilled, dexterous persons wiio usually look where they're going and what they're doing. ARIES (March 21-ApriI C o o p e rative feelings must show. Take the initiative and smile when you do it. No fak- ing is available and quite a threshold of personal reserve must be surmounted. TAURUS (April 20-May Realize there will be at least three persons for every ques- tion and every objection you encounter and make a suc- cess of negotiation, politicking. GEMINI (May 21 -June What you need to know pops up bright and early and you're on your way with a great deal of help, even more than you need in some areas. CANCER (June 21 July Any confiding you do is in the wrong direction and your story isn't correctly understood. It's better to ponder a while longer, find a deeper explanation. LEO (July 23 Ang. Healthy self interest is never out of season. Think where you fit into the scheme of tilings, act on what you know rather than what you're told. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Scpt. Whatever else happens, hold on lo your impulse; pause for a split second's reflection before answering provocation. LIBIIA (Sept. 23 Oct. A sudden transaction lacks re- ality. Get a second opinion; compare with available alter- natives and you'll see it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Expect a few bumps, a bit ol rough going in today's exped- ience. Stay near home base, learn something unusual. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dcc. Where there's a fuss there's an irritant. Get to the source quickly; do what you can. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. It's a sellers' day. Put a whacking good value on what- ever you offer, particularly on spur of the moment dealings. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. Prompt reactions arc the sensible approach for you. Set definite limits on what you un- dertake to do and get moving early. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Present your results answer questions, enter debates good spirits. The outcome will not be what anybody expects, but long range benefits to you are strongly indicated. (1371: By The Chicago Tribune) BERMUDA MURDER HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) The Bermuda government has called in Scotland Yard to investigate the rape-murder of a 24-year-old woman, described as the first crime of its kind on the island in 30 years. GQREN ON BHIDGE B? CHARLES H. GOREN IS mi: Br The TrUonO Both vulnerable. North deals, NORTH S7Q9874 01083 WEST EAST AQI0874 A652 tf K J 10 3 tf 5 OQ OAK9S2 763 SOUTH A K.I 9 3 0 JTG4 The bidding: North East Sooth West 1 Ftss 1 A Pass 2 Pass 2 NT Pass itn Pass Pass Pan Openfcg Seven ol A Failure to anticipate an Impending end play proved fatal io West today in a deal taken from a recent team-of- four event and led to a substantial swing against his side. 1 The bidding was the same el both tables, altho South might have responded ini- tially with a staple raise to two his band falling barely within the limits of a single raise. When North rebid two dubs, South felt constrained to make one push toward game, holding 10 high card points. Rather than offering a mere preference to two hearts, he chose the more aggressive course of bidding two no trump. North, of course, carried on to game in no trump. At each table, West opened the seven of spades, but the play varied from there. De- clarer won with dummy's blank ace, crossed over to the ace of hearts and.continued with the deuce. Both Wests followed with the ten and the queen was played from dummy. A heart was con- tinued to West's jack as East discarded first the five of diamonds and then a small spade. West cashed out the king of hearts and East parted with the deuce of clubs. Now the courses varied. At one table, West got out passively with a club, fearing that a spade continuation would be into declarer's tenace. South ran four rounds of clubs, cashed North's long heart and then led a dia- mond. East actually chose to go up with the king, dropping his partner's queen, and led a spade thru the declarer. The latter put up the king for his ninth spades, three hearts and four clubs. At the other table, when West went in with the jack of hearts, he foresaw the poten- tial endplay position looming in the diamond suit, and after cashing out the king of- hearts, he shifted to the queen of diamonds, in order to get that card out of his hand. When it held the trick, he exited with the club. East subsequently scored two more diamond tricks and the contact' was set up by one trick. The 100 point profit scored by East and West added to the 600 points picked up iy their teammates at the other table for making three no trump, nette'd a 700 point profit on the deal. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Time is healer for this disease Dear Dr. Lamb Could you please answer some questions for me regarding the virus Guillion-Barre? The virus is named after two Frenchmen who discovered it. I had this virus, four weeks at home in bed, three weeks in hospital, four1 more weeks at home in bed. I was off work four months all together. This affected me in both feet and both knees and right hand and arm. The right hand and arm became thin. I am male 36 years, never been sick before this. Can you tell me what caused this and what are the after-effects? My legs are tired most of the time and I have to rest often. Dear Reader Your story is not unusual for this disease. It goes by other names, such as infectious polyneuritis, meaning involvement of many nerves. Sometimes it is con- fused with polio. The truth is we don't know what causes it. Guillion and Barre did not de- scribe a virus but the disease. Polio commonly affects nerves by causing abnormal changes in the spinal cord. Polyneuritis affects the nerves just after they leave the spinal coi'd with similar effects. Swell- ing and degeneration of the nerve occurs and the muscles the nerves supply become weak or paralyzed. The legs are most often affected but the may spread up the spinal col- umn picking up nerves to the rest of the body and affecting the arms as in your case. Bare- ly are facial muscles and eye muscles involved. The muscle weakness and paralysis often begins without warning. There is no fever or other sign of illness. A few pa- tients complain of muscle pain. Most patients do recall a mild respiratory illness two or three weeks before muscle involve- ment. This has caused scien- tists to think that it is a form of allergic reaction the body sometimes has to developing an immune response to an infec- tion. We have a fancy term for tills, "autoimmune mechan- ism." One literally becomes al- lergic to a natural reaction of the body building a defense against "infection. The swelling University promised Red Deer RED DEER (CP) A fifth Alberta university would be constructed in Red Deer if the Conservative Party is elected in the Aug. 30 election, Peter Lougheed, leader of the provin- cial Conservatives, said here. He said in an interview he believed his party's spending on the election party would be one- third less than Social Credit party expenditures. But he would not reveal what Conser- vative party expenditures would be. Mr. Lougheed said the over- riding issue in the campaign is that the province could be do- ing better with Its resources and talent. and changes in the nerves !n this instance is an example of the allergiclike response. Muscle involvement contin- ues to a peak when all the muscles that are going (o be affected have been. Then there is a plateau phase with few changes followed by rapid or gradual recovery. Sometimes maximum recovery is not ob- tained for months. Most people recover completely but aboul one in 10 continue to have mus- cle weakness. In this respecl the outlook is far brighter than paralysis from polio. There isn't any really good treatment. Good nursing care perhaps hormones, time am hope are the best that can be offered. It sounds to me as if you have passed your peak problem and are well along the recovery phase. Massive deficit for U.S. WASHINGTON (AP) The Nixon administration rolled up a budget deficit dur- ing the 1971 fiscal year, the sec- ond-largest red-ink entry in fed- eral operations in the post-Sec- ond World War period, the treasury department saic Wednesday. The massive deficit for the 12 months that ended June 30 was topped only by the deficit rung up during fiscal 1968, when Lyndon B. Johnson was president. The government said it took to billion during the fisca] year and spent billion. But treasury Secretary John B. Connally and George P. Shultz, director of the office ol management and budget, saic the budget was in surplus on a full-employment basis by billion. In other words, if the econ- omy had been operating at four-per-cent unemployment during the fiscal year, which it wasn't, the government would have had a surplus. Shultz and Connally said it is the third year in a row the United States has not spent be- yond the revenues which would be expected to come in if the economy were operating at full steam. Lookout was blind ROME (toiler) President Giuseppe Saragat has granted a full pardon to Atanasio Pedone, a blind Italian who a dozen years ago was given a 17-year- term for acting as a lookout when a crime was committed. A Palermo court had convicted Pedone of murder and armed robbery in the 1958 incident.
